Since 2007 the Waltons have been pulling 79% of the profits out of WalMart. If they don't want to invest in WalMart's future, should you?
Kroger Co (NYSE:KR) has generally been a source of stable returns for investors. Kroger stock price was already feeling the pressure before the deal. In other words, is the company vulnerable to disruption?
Wal-Mart’s U.S. e-commerce chief Marc Lore said the online retail division is still in growth mode, the fruits of which will start paying off over the next two years and help it better compete with Amazon....
Fast food chain Carl’s Jr. (which some of you know as Hardee’s) recently suggested in some tweets that e-commerce giant Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) acquire the restaurateur. In August, the company closed on its purchase of grocer Whole Foods Market, bringing it head to head with names like Kroger Co (NYSE:KR) and Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT). Not only is it well out of AMZN stock’s wheelhouse (even by Amazon’s loose standards), it’s an increasingly tough business.
“It’s all inside” at JC Penney Company Inc (NYSE:JCP), and for JCP stock investors that has been less than good news for a very long time. It has been an awful few years for JCP stock. The way consumers shop is largely owned by Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) and Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT).
Morgan Stanley's Kimberly Greenberger and her team parse the results of their third annual AlphaWise apparel survey, writing that the results show that Amazon (AMZN) is increasingly taking share in the apparel space, hurting department stores and specialty retailers. First, Amazon--once again--is at the head of the pack in terms of brand net promotor score with a "staggering" 61% net promoter score (NPS), easily more than double Target (TGT), the next runner up at 28%, and nearly nine times the average score of other retailers. Secondly, Amazon, Zara, and Wal-Mart (WMT) were the winners in terms of consumers intent to purchase over the next 12 months, although off-price retailers including TJX Cos. (TJX) and Ross Stores (ROST) were at the top of the list.
Target’s price investment and higher costs associated with online orders are hurting its margins, which restricts the stock’s upside potential.
Target (TGT) announced that it's expanding its offering through Google Express nationwide. Shoppers will also be able to place voice-based orders.

A couple of weeks ago, what many investors had feared regarding Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) was confirmed, even if only tacitly — the long battle with Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) was finally creating a tangible headwind for COST stock, as the Costco stock price fell 6% in the wake of what was superficially a decent fourth quarter report. The profit of $2.08 per share of Costco stock was remarkably better than the year-ago figure of $1.77, and also better than analyst expectations. Whatever the case, with the dust now settling on the company’s fourth quarter report and with analysts making adjustments to their forecasts, it’s time to start asking the next inevitable question.
